Lemon water2

We have all heard that it’s good for our health to drink a slice of lemon in warm water before we start our day.
Here’s a Lemon “detox” drink that is like no other.

For years now, I have been having a slice of lemon in warm water before breakfast. Why would you bother? Here’s just some reasons to list why:

- Wakes up digestion before gulping down a big meal for breakfast

- Rich in vitamin C, needed for a healthy immunity and to fight of nasties!

- It balances pH levels in the body (Alkalizes)

- Boots metabolism

- Gets your digestive juices flowing

- Helps flush out toxins

- Helps reduce pain & inflammation in the body

- Assists in reducing the symptoms of a common cold

- Clears skin

- Strengthens the liver

- Replenishes body salts

So here’s why MY lemon detox drink is a little bit better, if you ask me!

To fire up that digestion even more, I’ve been adding a tablespoon of ACV (apple cider vinegar) to my water. You may want to start with only a teaspoon and go from there. It’s quite punchy {bitter}. Here are the benefits:

- Rich in potassium, needed for growth and systematic functioning

- Is anti-microbal (fights off pathogens, bad bacteria)

- Is anti-fungal

- Controls blood sugar levels

- Assist detoxification

- Cleanse the digestive tract

- Clears congestion

- Regulates pH levels in body (Alkalizes)

- Helps regulate blood pressure

- Clears skin

- Boosts metabolism

…. There are so many amazing healthful benefits of adding ACV into your daily diet, I could go on for days! Patricia Bragg wrote a book on all of them! Apple Cider Vinegar Miracle Health System

Now this is where is gets really exciting..

Instead of using LEMONS in my drink, I now use lemon essential oil!

Lemon Essential oil is cold-pressed from the lemon peel to preserve it’s delicate nature and potent properties.

If you Google taking lemon essential oil internally you might come across some articles that state to do otherwise, and I’m all totally for that, IF they’re not of a certified pure therapeutic grade. I personally use and share doTerra Essential Oils.
Some of their essential oils you can actually take internally and are completley safe in doing so, for added health benefits. Lemon essential oil being one.

doTerra’s lemon esssential oil is like no lemon or lemon essential oil I have ever tasted or smelt and it just divine! So yummy!! I don’t know why but it takes me back to my childhood and actually reminds me a bit of those lemonade ice-poles you had at the local swimming pool! … Except much better for you of course!!!

All you need of this amazing oil is 1-2 drops in a cup/mug of warm water with ACV and boom! Prepare to be amazed at how you feel..

“From what we can tell, Ayurvedic medicine has been using both lemons and lemon essential oil to treat a wide spectrum of health conditions for at least 1,000 years.  The health benefits of lemon essential oil have been well established scientifically.” – Dr. Josh Axe

Adding Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Lemon Essential Oil to your daily life can:

-Speed metabolism

-Aid in weight-loss

- Provide a natural energy boost

- Assit concentration

- Support healthy immunity

- Clear skin/ reduce acne

- Cleanse toxins from the body

- Improve digestion

- Support a healthy respiratory function

- Suppress the symptoms of hay fever / seasonal allergies (natural anti-histamine)

- Reduce nauseousness ( Dr.Josh Axe reported a study done on pregnant women. Astoundingly, of the 100 women that participated in the study, reports of symptoms dramatically decreased just after 2 days compared to the placebo group. After 4 days the essential oil group experienced an average of 33% decrease in nausea and vomiting!)

Personally, adding lemon essential oil into my daily diet has been one of THE best things I could have done for my health in taking it up the next notch!
It has cleared my skin and given me a natural glow, whitened the whites of my eyes and made the iris even more blue that what my super greens were currently doing!!
Not to mention much better digestion!!! Let’s just say if you’re ever stuck- let lemon essential oil be your friend. Trust me, it works. ;)

Lemon essential oil is one of the top essential oils sold around the world and unfortunately is one of the main oils that have been played around with. Manufacturers adding synthetics, alcohols and diluting it down with base oils or water. Not to mention the chemical spray residues they contain!!
